Wrapping March

For the month of March, I placed all of my energy in my Academic Achievement. 
It went so well. I'm so glad that I was able to be extremely disciplined and actually make some changes in my habits when it comes to school.
These are a few things that really helped me out a lot this month in staying focused, on task, and productive.
1.I stayed away from watching Netflix and Hulu. For the entire month.  I did watch it a little bit, but mostly just at night after all of my day's tasks were complete.
2.  I worked on my study strategies.  It isn't enough to open a book and read it.  You have to actually LEARN.  I know. Shocking.

3.  I worked on prioritizing and timing my tasks.  It kept me from spending too much time on one task and allowed me to make time for everything that I had on the to-do list.
+Also this month, I made a move towards a more "college based" blog.  I'm writing more posts about my life here in Vegas surviving as a college student specifically.  I also shared a few ways you can conqure college
+In March I started into a brand new sponsorship program.  It's really awesome and I'm super excited to start sharing all the wonderful people who have invested in my future as a teacher and have trusted me to promote their blogs. If you're interested I higly reccomend you click on the 'Advertise' link above.
+I also joined a blogger network! I'm really excited to see what kinds of opportunities it has to offer and I am pumped about making my blog even more awesome.
+I got a new job, applied for 50 others, and got a new schedule at job#1. 
+And I found out I'm about to put in a packet for Promotion in the Army!
Lately, my mantra has beenAs long as you are getting better and progressing day by day, even if it's a tiny bit, you should smile. Every day is worth getting out of bed and pushing for something better than before. If you ask me, I have made a heck of a lot of progress in the past month and I'm really quite proud of it.  Spring has sprung, life is good, and there are even better days to come.
What has March been like for you?

I love the idea of "progress" as your mantra!! Sometimes I set such high goals for myself and have to step back and think that I'm doing better and can't get too stressed out that I'm not all the way there. Good for you with the Netflix, too!! That is totally a weakness for me.

Hooray! I'm glad you were able to focus on your school work! I love your no netflix sign; I could benefit from that!

Great progress indeed!

It honestly improved my productivity so much. I probably got twice as much done in half the time becuase I wasn't just lazing about watching Netflix...It was amazing. I learned a lot from that little experiment.

Katie said...

That's why I've been doing everything just a little bit at a time. It has helped to focus on ONE goal each month so that I'm not overwhelmed with the want to be better in a million different aspects. I feel like I'm inching towards a better me and it feels great.

Katie said...

thank you! I'm really excited about it. I'm excited to be an NCO.

Thanks! It was a lot of work but so worth it in the end.
